Academic Experience: The program that I'm enroll is in the health care administration. I pretty much will be doing a lot of computer work and also dealing with patients in the way that I will be answering phones and making appointments also will be learning some billing and coding process to grow more in my job. I will have the opportunity to work for a medical office or hospital or even a dental facility.

Academic Experience: This school has a lot to offer its students. Unfortunately the morning class is fullest so its harder for the teachers to make sure that everyone in the class understands the material. However the teachers are more than willing to work with you after class in the student center or the library. The staff is friendly and have never made me feel stupid for a question i didnt understand. If my teacher was unavailable then there are several other teachers to choose from that know the material you are learning.

Academic Experience: I am training in my classes to become a medical assistant (MA). Academically this school is more than i expected. They say when your signing up at the begining that the faculty has hand on experience and that the classes are fast pased. I didnt truely understand what they meant until i got through my first set of classes. Having a teacher that has had field training is emensely helpful for future knowledge. The work load is acceptable considering that the classes are fast pased. Teachers are very helpful and if anything in the curriculum is difficult they are not afraid to help you answer those questions you have. Some of the teachers even have you text them your questions during the day/night and they will help you work through it. As far as internships and job opportunitites are conserned i am only on my second mod (term) of classes so i havent explored those options. However i hear that the career center is very helpful and work hard to obtain a facility and work environment that best compliments who you are and where your talents would work best in.

Academic Experience: The teachers I've had so far have been fantastic. Their education and actual experience out in the medical field have been great resources to feed off of and learn more about what I'm going to be doing. They teach by the curriculum with their own little twist, and each of their differences make up for a great variety of classes throughout the day. Registering was smooth, but difficult. There were specific requirements to be accepted into this program, and personally, I'm a fan. It proves to me that they care about their accreditation. Also, makes me feel like a success even being accepted into the program.
